I am thinking about doing something crazy, and I have no idea if this will work. But if it does it will be awesome and I will forever wonder why I haven't heard others doing this before. I could use a new router. I would prefer an Airport Express because it would be great to use it to stream my music to my stereo. But a time machine would be nice too. I'd like an AppleTV as well. But what I really need is an affordable way to speed up render times with FCP. Why can't I just buy a Mac Mini? Hook it up directly to the ethernet. Create a network. Plug my stereo and TV into it. And use QMaster with FCP to assign rendering tasks to it. With a big drive perhaps I can find a way to use TimeMachine to back everything up there as well. It could even be my server! Why can't I even use it as my main machine through screen sharing?!! If this sounds nutty, it may come to no surprise that I really am no pro, and it may be difficult to accomplish this if it's even possible. What do you think?
